How TDoA works Time Difference of Arrival Used with any CCX tags (not client) Wi-Fi TDoA receivers are synchronized Distances between the tag and APs is calculated based on the time difference of arrival Requires Line of Sight Recommended for high ceilings, outdoors and outdoor like environments (e.g. warehouses, parking lots) Wi-Fi TDoA Receiver #1 TDoA Wi-Fi TDoA Receiver #2 TDoA Wi-Fi TDoA Receiver #3 TDoA Sent at T0 Received at T1 Received at T2 Received at T3 Derived D1 Derived D2 Derived D3 D1 D2 D3
How RSSI works Received Signal Strength Indicated Used with Tags and Clients Receivers are the access points Distances between the tag and APs is calculated based on the received signal strength Requires medium to short read range for better accuracy Recommended for indoors Wi-Fi Access Point #1 Wi-Fi Access Point #2 Wi-Fi Access Point #3 Measured Strength S1 Measured Strength S2 Measured Strength S3 Derived D1 Derived D2 Derived D3 D1 D2 D3
How Chokepoint works Hybrid tags with 125 kHz passive and Wi-Fi active sides Tags and chokepoints have to be from the same vendor (Aeroscout or WhereNet) When the tag is in close proximity of the chokepoint, its passive side gets excited and captures the information (location and sensoring) then the active side sends the information over Wi-Fi The tag beaconing frequency can be reconfigured by the chokepoint Indoor or Outdoor Wi-Fi Access Point Passive Active 125 kHz Wi-Fi Chokepoint
